    You just need to peel all the skin off down to the bone.

    I cutt off my turkey feet at the knees. Put them someplace a cat cant get to them. About the 4th of July take out the feet. Cut off the spur with one cutt above the spur and one cut below the spur. Take a utility knive and peal off all the scales and leaders. Push the morrow out of the bone. String em up. Nothing to it.

    I think I might start a little necklace like this. No one is ever interested in seeing my plastic bag full of turkey legs when I try to show off my spurs as it is now.

    Maybe this will be more popular;) :tu

    I like to cut the leg off at the elbow joint and freeze the lower leg right away, seems to cut easier frozen. Use a hacksaw or coping saw to cut above and below the spur. Peel the skin and blow out the marrow right away and the bone will stay more white. Then I let them dry real good and clean up with a Dremel using that neat little drum sander that you can get for the Dremel. Maybe a little automotive clear coat on the bone too.

    I like how mudhen keeps the pairs together, I know some guys that try to display them like each spur is for a single turkey.:rolleyes:

    I've been ready since last May. I just got in my new house and I can't wait to step out on the back porch and hear a big gobble!
